A Catholic Priest talking about Evil is not unusual. However, a Catholic Priest looking directly into the eyes of "Evil" who the Monk calls "The Ugly" is unusual even for the Capitol Hill area of Denver and St. Benedict the Moor's Church. This is just one of the "Spiritual Tests" the Monk faces as he attempts to solve the murder of Julia Lopez with his ex-Partner Det. Sgt. Jack Laskey.
With political pressure applied by the Governor, the Archbishop of Denver and the Franciscan Provincial, The Monk becomes a "Special Consultant" and helps Laskey solve the "Murder of the Decade" and save his position which was in jeopardy due to his inability to adjust to any Partner other than the Monk. During the course of the investigation the Monk faces the "Ugly" in many forms in the present and confrontations from the past. Those confrontations led the Monk to become a Priest and a "Spiritual Warrior" as well as a "Physical Warrior." Leaving the and security of "Our Lady of the Rockies" Orphanage run by his Order, the Monk must return to the streets of Denver and find the killers with Laskey.
William Yeats Butler known as "The Monk" on Capitol Hill gave up a promising career in the NFL to become a Policeman. He had been an All-American at Notre Dame and was a local Hero and role model in Denver. Through 10 years with Laskey as his Partner, they worked Patrol, Narcotics and Homicide. They were the "Toughest Cops" on the streets of Denver. In their quest they are assisted by Irish/Japanese Officer Mai Li McDuff. Some would say she got the worst of both cultures; "Peaches" the transvestite hooker; "Popcan Charley" a resident of Cheeseman Park; "Mikey" the restaurant owner with Mob connections and "Frank" the only "Irish English Bulldog" in Colorado - all this under the watchful eyes of Father Ian Timony, Father Augustus O'Shea and Aunt Rhoda Williams.

The true heart of Tribal Abundance is connecting, supporting, collaborating and not competing. The tribal piece and the abundance piece are closely intertwined and almost inseparable. Being able to be a supportive and collaborative member of a tribe comes from having an abundance mindset and not from a fear-based place of scarcity.
Have you ever felt powerless and alone? It happens throughout life but when those moments happen at work it's really difficult to know how to act or what to think. Sometimes it feels like betrayal or as though a great injustice has been done to us.
It's how we respond to those moments that determines the path of our life journey. They help shape us into the person we are today.
My journey led me to Tribal Abundance® and it's a journey I'd like to share with you. The experiences I had shaped and molded me and out of this came the Tribal Abundance philosophy. It led me to a place where the philosophy of Tribal Abundance has been my North Star, my compass. Coming from a place of Tribal Abundance has helped me to navigate the uncertain waters of life with optimism and a sense of joy.
The heart of Tribal Abundance® is about finding your tribe and working as a tribe and having an abundance mindset rather than a scarcity mindset.
Finding your tribe is powerful; so many people feel disconnected from others, they feel like outsiders, like they don't belong. And I've also experienced many women who are competitive, who move towards shutting others out, who want to be on top, who feel as though they have to trample on a lot of other women to get ahead.
And having that abundance mindset, the perspective that there IS enough for everyone and there is no need to greedily grasp at things, afraid there isn't enough, but rather you can have an open heart and mind trusting that there is no lack. Living in this mindset draws you to your tribe and attracts like-minded people to you...
In this book, I want to give you the tools and perspective to shift towards living a life of Tribal Abundance. Whether you're dissatisfied with your current employment or not living your life to its full potential, embracing Tribal Abundance will help you surround yourself with like-minded people, your tribe. And your tribe can provide you with the support and collaboration that you need to live life to its fullest and achieve your goals.
